As I’ve mentioned before I’m gearing up to start cooking roasts. Since I’m not completely confident in this feat I’ve recently made a few meals following recipes. This one was definitely worth posting. We all know I’m not a fan of using recipes, well more so following instructions, but so far things have been working out. I try not to cook really fatty meats but this recipe caught my eye. I do love short ribs and so does Josh. I haven’t made them in the last year and a half so I figured it was worth the try. This meal was wonderful. I downscaled the recipe a bit as I didn’t think we needed 4 lbs of meat between the two of us. It calls for brown ale and I was sure to use one I love, Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale. The recipe called for hot paprika and smoked paprika. I have Hungarian paprika and smoked paprika so I used those. For root vegetables I bought celeriac, turnip, and carrot. The celeriac was my favorite of the three and I almost wish I used just that. This is an easy meal to throw together and definitely worth a try.
